Step 1Heat the grill to medium.
Step 2Peel the ginger root and grate with a fine grater, reserving the pulp and liquid. Combine the liquid, soy sauce, wine, sugar, syrup, pepper, garlic, pear, onion and jalapeno. Press through a fine strainer to remove the solids, reserving the liquid in a bowl. Stir in the sesame oil.
Step 3Add the ribs immediately and turn to coat. (Do not let the meat sit in the marinade.)
Step 4Grill the ribs, turning, about 2 minutes a side, until seared on the outside but still pink inside.
